  47. Hello from east anglia!

    After having my last corsa stolen and written off I've decided to buy another, picked myself a 5door 1.2 16v sxi, it's completely standard at the moment but just gonna start with a few simple mods but will be looking to build something awesome soon!

  50. Mods to corsa c. New to it all!!!

    What modifications can you make to a corsa without it effecting your insurance or are there ways around it. I don't want anything major. Just wanting Sri alloys, mudflaps and wind deflectors and maybe a few other changes. I've already changed my stereo. Based dn10
